Abstract for: System Dynamics Simulation Modelling of “Kastela Bay” Regional System
Although large developed System dynamics model can be applied on different ecological system in this paper it is applied on Kastela region in Croatia. The Computer Simulation Sub model of The Ecological Regional Subsystem of the "KASTELA BAY" is an extra relevant submodel of The System Dynamics Computer Simulation Model of the “KASTELA BAY” which has been developed with the help of System Dynamics. It is, in its essence, a continuous model because it is presented as a system of non-linear differential equations. At the same time, it is a discrete model, because it is presented as a system of linear differential equations (System Dynamics DYNAMO - software package). Its DT (length of intervening time = computation interval) is chopped in full accordance with the Sampling Theorem (Shannon and Koteljnikov). The System Dynamics Computer Simulation Model of the "Kastela Bay" also employs certain experience gathered by experts who had worked on the preparation of projects: "Blue Plan" and "The Methodological Basis for the Scenario of the Management of Natural Resources of the "Kastela Bay"" (1991).
